How do I find the IP address of a subdomain?
For example, I know how to get the IP of www.abc.com

But how do I get the exact IP of www.abc.com/abc

Is that possible? The IP has to be routed to the subdomain?

    but the subdomain must have it's own IP address... 192.168.1.1:XXX

    or something like that maybe? Can you ping a subdomain or only the root domain?

      the name server sends requests to the appropriate sub domain

      the only way you could ping a sub domain, is if the sub domain resided on a different server ( ip address )....

      like ftp.somedomain.com

      sometimes they do, some times they don't. but that type of sub domin
      is not usually accessible via browser... and again. the DNS routes it

      No thats a private address with a port reference on the end. You can ping anything as long as the firewalls allow it...

    abc.com is a 2nd level domain name, or what is usually called a domain name. It can have it's own IP address.

    www.abc.com is a 3rd level domain name, or what is usually called a subdomain name. It can have it's own IP address, even though www is USUALLY the same.

    www.abc.com/abc is a DIRECTORY(abc) in the base directory of the domain www.abc.com and MUST have the SAME IP as www.abc.com. There is NO provision ANYWHERE to declare an IP for a directory. Of course, domain names, and protocols, generally declare a given BASE directory. That depends on the setup and you may need to go to your webhost to find that out. You could almost think of the IP(for IPv4) as a set of 5 numbers. 4 are one byte numbers, and in a group known as the IP address. The fifth is a 2 byte number called the port. The IP says the system and or part of the system, and the port says whch service and often points to a different base directory.
